Home Drive / User Area Setup
On our school network, the home drive setup on the NAS drive im sure has not been setup the best way it could be....
The Current setup is:
The only share setup is on the main Student_drives folder, and this only has everyone
NTFS permissions are also show below, only admin in there.
Same for the Year folders they only have ntfs permissions for Admin/domain admin, and no share files.
On the Students folder they have no share, and NTFS they have admin and there username.
Nowhere is any mention of "creator owner" and none of the shares are hidden.
See attached below
Im having quite a few problems with this setup,
1) With Office 2007 when they try to navigate to there home drive, office crashes, the way ive temp fixed it is to add "traverse folders" for "Students" on the "Student_Drives" share...
2) When students create a new file, they then are the "owner" of this file, and thus they get automatically "change and view permissions" even though its not checked or even denied. This means the sneaky ones will try and change all their permissions trying to deny the admin etc. and also messing up folders, meaning i have to fix it all.
3) The Staff drives are setup the same, and laptop users get "Access Denied" on every single offline file when they try to synronize!!
Microsoft said: "To configure a share so that users can synchronize with a subfolder under the Home$ share, grant all of the users at least Read permissions on the Home folder" so i added staff to the "Staff_drives" folder (the only folder shared) and it seemed to fix it...
All this tells me that my drives shares arent set up correctly?
Can anyone please help
